Lessons are taught according to the Rising Stars 'Champions Scheme'. Please view our Curriculum Overviews to see the scope and sequence of lessons taught - allowing a progression of skills taught across the school. Through our PE teaching we aim to ensure that all pupils:
- Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
- Are physically active for sustained periods of time
- Engage in competitive sports and activities
- Lead healthy, active lives
We have been awarded the Youth Sport Trust Silver Quality Mark for our commitment to physical education (PE) and school sport. Pupils are actively encouraged to take part in a wide range of sports clubs including multi-sports, Rugby Tots, basketball, football, netball and gymnastics. Pupils engage in competitive sports and have the opportunity to represent our school at local, regional and national competitions. This includes opportunities for pupils with special educational needs to participate in inclusive competitions including the annual New Age Kurling Competition.
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the School Games Gold Mark Award for our commitment to the development of competition across our school and into the community. Pupils are encouraged to lead healthy and active lives through PE lessons linking with work in PSHE. This is also promoted through our annual Health and Wellbeing Week and through initiatives such as ‘the daily mile’ and ‘Walk to School weeks.’
